The bidding war between Juventus and Inter Milan has come to an end following the two Italian giants battling it out for the services of Torino star defender Gleison Bremer. According to Fabrizio Romano, it is Juventus who have won the race for the defender as their bid has been accepted.
Bremer has been on major clubs’ radars for months now leading to a tussle for his services between Inter and Juventus. Romano previously reported that The Old Lady made a better offer of roughly £34 million plus a potential £6 million in add-ons. Their rivals have offered a lower £25.5 million with Cesare Casadei going the other way as part of the deal.

Following an incredible run of nine league titles in a row for Juventus, the last two Serie A titles have been split by the Milan sides. Massimiliano Allegri is currently retooling his side but reports indicate that he will be losing a key part of his squad with Matthijs de Ligt linked with Bayern Munich.
If the club aims to get back into the title fight in the coming seasons then they will need to pull off this deal for the 25-year-old.
Inter Lose Out on Key Player
After winning the league title in the 2020/21 campaign to end their drought, Inter lost out in the 2021/22 season to their rivals AC Milan. The Rossoneri have had their squad depleted so far this summer, however, which opened the door for their rivals to gain an edge in this window.
Inter have yet to strengthen to any notable degree, aside from Romelu Lukaku returning on loan, and missing out on Bremer is the latest setback for the club.
